    As we know that ASD (autism spectrum disorder) is becoming a major issue, but don’t be panic we can do some easy simple activities to handle it. 

    An infant has such exposure to sensory stimulation every day. From sounds to pictures, through textures and temperatures, a baby’s sensory system develops quickly and fills away information.

    Easy Visual Sensory Activities For Infants

    Here you will find visual sensory activities for autism that can be used to help you connect and play with your child. These ideas for baby sensory play will encourage the exploration of colors, textures, and properties.

    This is a 5-step, all-inclusive online training for new mothers focused on developing the whole child from birth to 12 months of age. It comprises the following elements:

    • Language development (talking to your child)
    • Healthy sleep habits (understanding infant sleep)
    • Cognitive and motor development (playing with one’s baby)
    • Read with your baby (vocabulary, driving vision, speech, and language)
    • Infant nutrition (feeding the baby)

    Child development begins in the womb. As this baby develops and grows in utero, he already stretches and moves, practices reaching and grasping, and stretches against the walls of his mother’s uterus. That push and pull that you felt like a mom waiting for you was your little one gaining in strength and sensory input! 

    This motor development is ongoing after birth. and that’s where the fun begins because as a mom or dad, we can snuggle up on this little one, engage with them, and look at their every move!

    Let’s go through the details. In the newborn and newborn stages (0-3 months), you will see so many physical and sensorial milestones. These are developments that have an effect on movement, communication, and food. The sensory developmental stages of the first three months include:

    • Following a person through the eyes.
    • Lifting their head to observe and listen
    • Pushing up their arms while lying in the womb, now babies can really start taking in the world around them.
    • Keep your head up when lying on your tummy.
    • Open their fist in stretched fingers- little can grasp and begin to explore the textures.
    • Bring the hands to the mouth for a sensorial intake, soothing and soothing.
    • Searching for toys to explore.
    • Focuses on sounds or voices.
    • Make eye contact.
    • Moving legs and arms- They are to understand how their body moves in space and how much effort is required to move.

    Since the first few weeks, the baby never focused on anything. strengthen eye movements and focus to visually follow a toy or person at the end of 3 months. In this stage, it is important to allow the baby to move, stretch, kick and strengthen the trunk, neck, arms, legs, and eye muscles.
